The Wolf Among Us - Episode 3: A Crooked Mile

Telltale Games

Short and (not so) sweet, and ends with a bang (a few actually). Not much more to say really.

More like Episode 2 than Episode 1, the choices are the thing. I did what most people did (according to the stats) except for the last big choice. My Bigby is trying hard to be more reasonable, but a broken nose or two can’t be helped, especially when they deserved it.

The plot moves on and we are definitely getting closer to what is really going on. Some new characters  come on board, and I can’t wait to see the newest one again. This mirror image is far more interesting than the alternatives.

Everything remains top notch and suitable “gritty”. If you don’t like bad language or adult themes, stay away.

It is short, 90 minutes perhaps, but it wasn’t a letdown. As the set up to the finale, it would be just about right; with two episodes to go, you could argue it needed more, not in terms of the where it takes the story, but just more so it couldn’t be said it was eking out what should be a shorter story. Nit-picky perhaps, but nothing can be perfect.

No more ratings until the whole thing is finished, but I think I am looking forward to the next part more than the next Walking Dead instalment. High praise indeed.

I played on:

OS: Windows 7

Processor: Intel i7-3820 4GHz

RAM: 12GB Ripjaw DDR3 2133 Mhz

Video card: AMD Radeon HD 7800 2048MB

 

The game can be obtained from TellTale Games.
